The emergency epidemic situation in the country will be extended to August 31st. This was announced during a briefing at which new socio-economic measures in the fight against COVID-19 and the crisis were introduced by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.
On May 6, the checkpoints organized by the Ministry of Interior on the entrance-exit roads of regional city centers were removed. The only exception is Yambol. The checkpoints will remain open there for now because the epidemiological situation requires it, the Ministry of Interior explained. The order for removing the checkpoints in Bulgaria was issued by the Health Minister. The same order repeals the stricter measures for entering and leaving the city of Sofia.
